Innovation Foundation (IFD) project DURALEDGE/Durable leading edges for high tip speed wind turbine blades
The objective of the DURALEDGE project is to improve the lifetime of wind turbine blades, and to reduce service and maintenance costs during the operation of the turbines by predicting, modelling and understanding the leading edge erosion mechanisms and by developing new highly durable protective coatings and guidelines for the coating development.
The project began om November 1, 2019 and runs until October 30, 2021.
Partners: DTU Wind Energy, Vestas, Siemens Gamesa, LM Wind Power, Hempel AS, Covestro Deutschland.
IFD project EROSION: Wind Turbine Blade Erosion・Reducing the largest uncertainties
The project began om April 1. 2017 and runs until March 31. 2020.
Partners: DTU Wind Energy, DMI, E.On, Vattenfall, R&D AS, Vestas.
